The Scottish Government today, 28 June 2023, published Scotland’s first joint National Litter and Flytipping Strategy.
The National Litter and Flytipping Strategy sets out a refreshed approach to tackling litter and flytipping in order to protect and enhance Scotland’s environment; ensure safer and cleaner communities and contribute to a thriving circular economy for Scotland.
An action plan has been published, detailing specific actions and interventions to be progressed by the Scottish government and its partners and agencies in the first year.
Lorna Slater, minister for green skills, circular economy and biodiversity, said: “Scotland is a beautiful country and we all have a responsibility to keep it that way.
“This government makes no apologies for taking bold action on tackling litter and fly-tipping, which is a blight on our streets, communities and countryside, as well as threatening our natural environment and wildlife.”
